Even though The Managua Lectures is considered to be on Noam’s more accessible side it’s still tough going. Both books deal specifically with the relationship between thought and language. The lack of language leaving us in an abyss. What implications does this have on instrumental music? Well, language is going to ground you somewhere else. That, too, is an important and fundamental experience- but in order to experience music untethered by distraction we must look for it in instrumentals to enjoy it in an open field of consciousness.
